My Essential Oil Epiphany

I was a new mom trying to teach myself all the safest natural options for my daughter by scouring google. I really wanted to understand natural health so I wouldn’t have to feel confused or scared anytime my daughter was ill or uncomfortable .

I wanted to be able to truly understand natural options so I could take care of her health needs safely at home.

The thing is I was struggling with lack of clear and concise resources. That meant I wasn’t able to understand natural options, let alone take care of her health needs safely at home.

To make things worse, I felt terrible because I was just sure when push came to shove I wouldn’t know the right natural choice for her. I felt even worse about the situation because I knew continuing down the standard path wasn’t best for us, but natural health felt so overwhelming. So, I tended to do nothing in fear I’d do the wrong thing. I felt like I was controlled by my confusion and ready to give up.

The problem was that I was overwhelmed by muddy and conflicting information on all sides. It seemed for every blog that gave me an answer, I found another that said that answer would hurt me or my family. Which meant I was paralyzed by opposing and confusing  viewpoints and couldn’t move forward in any direction. Therefore, my family suffered any time we were sick or uncomfortable because I knew what not to do, but not what to do…

Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened…

That’s when I literally stumbled into an Oils 101 class at a mommy conference and learned all about how simple it could be to incorporate natural options safely into my life!

It was now crystal clear to me how to use essential oils for little things and big things that affected my family’s health and wellness, because I saw I could be empowered at the moment a wellness need popped up for us, whether in the middle of the day, or at two in the morning..

I also learned that essential oils didn’t have to be scary, you need to learn a few key safety points instead.

As a result I began filling my home with natural options.

After I did that, I started using oils and natural products that were effective for nearly any issue I would encounter.

Suddenly, I was experiencing health and vitality for my daughter and I, without experiencing damaging long term side effects.

That’s when I realized that the secret to safe and effective natural wellness was learning to use essential oils.

My plan was to start using oils for easy to address wellness needs, like calming or sleep.

So I started reading every essential oil guide I could get my hands on. But we didn’t stop there.

We then started playing around with all the natural products so we could find solutions for lots of issues in our life and the lives of those in our community.

After that, we started sharing our experiences naturally with those around us.

But there was still a problem…

I began to encounter the “mommy blogs”. You know the ones. The blogs that told me my choices were dangerous and could permanently harm me and my children. I dropped back into a period of indecision for a week or two. I remember crying in my husband’s arms, confused how something that worked so well for us could have so many people up in arms. I began to dig deeply into aromatherapy resources across multiple schools of thought. I spent hours upon hours exploring the actual research and history behind essential oil use until I felt 100% comfortable with my choices for my family. I taught what I’d learned, actually went through aromatherapy training and gained real life experience. I was able to recommend essential oils and learn the common questions, pitfalls and most importantly, success stories.

We ended up getting so frustrated with the conflicting information out there that we decided to compile everything I learned into a simplified, easy to understand, e-book.

We chose to call it “Essential Oils Simplified”.

We thought if we could create something that would make it possible to distill everything I’d learned over the past 6 years into an easy to understand and concise guide, we’d be really happy.

After 6 years of digging through the mountains of natural wellness information on the world wide web, surviving the “essential oil wars”, and living to tell the tale, we created Essential Oils Simplified.

I can now know with complete certainty what natural health choices to make for my family every time.

We are proud to let others who are confused by natural health use Essential Oils Simplified.

As a result of all my time and research I am now a part of educating thousands of people on safe and effective essential oil use every day. I get to hear the tearful success stories and see the breakthroughs over and over.

After learning all of the information in Essential Oils Simplified, I was not only able to harness my passion into a full time occupation helping others understand natural health, I’ve also been able to stop worrying that I’m making a mistake, because we can now know with confidence that our choices are safe and effective.

And in the end, all of this means I’m now able to live my most vibrant, healthy and empowered life, and share it with those who mean the most to me.
